How Owens Corning Shingles Are Made

Every shingle Owens Corning Roofing makes combines consistent quality with long-lasting beauty and maximum protection. Performance is at the heart of every Owens Corning Roofing product.

Every Owens Corning™ shingle line features:

  • Fiberglas® mat that adds weather protection, great fire resistance and long life.
  • Weathering-grade asphalt that holds the granules on the shingle and protects the roof from water.
  • Colorful mineral granules that help reflect the sun's rays while adding beauty and style to the roof.
  • Heat-activated adhesive strip that bonds shingles into a single, watertight unit.
  • Class A Fire Rating, the highest available for residential applications.
  • Wind Resistance Rating for winds and gusts up to 130 mph depending on the shingle style selected.
  • Owens Corning™ shingle warranties* range from 25-year to limited lifetime terms (for as long as the homeowner owns the home).

Owens Corning™ 3-Tab Shingles

Three-tab shingles are the roofing industry's standard, consisting of two layers of asphalt around a Fiberglas® mat core covered with ceramic mineral granules, notched into three integrated pieces, or tabs.
